Ground of Legends


Between the years of 1901 and 1939, Aylestone Road was home to Leicestershire County Cricket Club, and there were 399 first class games played in total.

As a result, not only did legendary players of fellow counties play at this ground, but also touring sides of Australia, South Africa, West Indies, India and New Zealand. Below is a list of some of the legends:
